Let the Experts Inspect Cracks In Your Swimming Pool

If the pool’s surface is showing a large number of cracks on the surface walls, you want to have the pool professionally inspected. There is a chance that a pool expert in Nassau County like Empire Pools might suggest resurfacing. Large cracks that proceed through the pool shell can potentially cause major pool leaks. When a pool is resurfaced, the pool water is temporarily drained, dried and then the pool resurfacing can begin. When the restoration procedure is deemed complete, the pool will be refilled with water. A pool owner will rejoice upon seeing the pool surface restored to immaculate like-new condition.

Swimming Pool Leaks

Swimming pool leaks are of a serious nature and need professional pool service intervention. A pool owner that needs to constantly add water to fill the pool up to the surface line needs to face the reality that the pool water is leaking from somewhere. The “where” is the mystery unless a pool owner sees the water dripping from the pool equipment or pipes. Truth is that pool leaks don’t magically go away. The leak will get worse if the source of the leak is not found and the issue repaired. Contact a pool professional for swimming pool repair. Highly trained technicians from Empire Pools will arrive at your location fully equipped to find the source of the leak and fix it.

Rough Swimming Pool Surfaces

Many types of swimming pool surfaces are designed with a rough texture to provide added slip resistance. On the other hand, as time goes on and the pool ages, the rough texture actually gets rougher, to the point of actually leaving a scratch on a swimmer’s skin. One solution is for the swimming pool surface to be restored. An acid wash can be performed to remove the calcium deposits that contribute to the unacceptable rough texture.

Professional Removal of Stains From a Swimming Pool

Concrete pools are notorious for absorbing stains. This is caused by algae, mineral deposits and other debris in the pool water. A pool owner tries diligently to remove the stains on a pool’s surface using product after product bought at the local pool store. When after applying the store bought cleaning solution, the stains are still visible, the pool owner turns to a professional pool company for stain removal pool service.

Trained pool repair professionals like the technicians at Empire Pools will resurface your swimming pool or perform an acid wash on the surface walls. An acid wash requires the temporary draining of the swimming pool. The diluted acid solution is then carefully and strategically poured onto the swimming pool’s surface. The acid is designed to remove the top layer of plaster thereby removing the stains and discoloration with it. This one day treatment is a cost-effective way to make your pool look outstandingly clean and new.

Proper Pool Maintenance Can Help Reduce Future Costly Pool Repair

To reduce future problems with a swimming pool, a pool owner can practice some routine pool maintenance throughout the years. Maintenance is actually a smart way to lessen the chance of costly repairs. To keep pool water healthy and safe for swimming in addition to looking cleaner than ever, pool owners are urged to do the following:

  1. Skim the pool surface regularly to remove leaves, dirt, and other debris
  2. Brush the pool walls with a heavy duty brush with telescoping pole
  3. Vacuum the pool floor manually or purchase a robotic vacuum.
  4. Test the water with a chemical kit weekly
  5. Maintain a proper pH and chemical balance
  6. Empty the skimmer basket as often as possible
  7. Check the filter and clean or replace filter when needed
  8. Run your pool pump daily

Some information about Levittown, NY

Levittown is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County, on Long Island, in New York, United States. It is located halfway between the villages of Hempstead and Farmingdale. As of the 2010 census, the CDP had a total population of 51,881, making it the most populated CDP in Nassau County and the second most populated CDP on Long Island, behind only Brentwood.

The building firm, Levitt & Sons, headed by Abraham Levitt and his two sons, William and Alfred, built four planned communities called ‘Levittown’, in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Puerto Rico; the Levittown in New York was the first. Additionally, Levitt & Sons’ designs are featured prominently in the older portion of Buffalo Grove, Illinois; Vernon Hills, Illinois; Willingboro Township, New Jersey; the Belair section of Bowie, Maryland; and the Greenbriar section of Fairfax, Virginia.

The Levitt firm began before World War II, as a builder of custom homes in upper middle-class communities on Long Island. During the war, however, the home building industry languished under a general embargo on private use of scarce raw materials. William ‘Bill’ Levitt served in the Navy in the Seabees – the service’s construction battalions – and developed expertise in the mass-produced building of military housing using uniform and interchangeable parts. He was insistent that a postwar building boom would require similar mass-produced housing, and was able to purchase options on large swaths of onion and potato fields in undeveloped sections of Long Island.

Returning to the firm after war’s end, Bill Levitt persuaded his father and brother to embrace the utilitarian system of construction he had learned in the Navy. With his brother, Alfred, who was an architect, he designed a small one-floor house with an unfinished ‘expansion attic’ that could be rapidly constructed and as rapidly rented to returning GIs and their young families. Levitt & Sons built the community with an eye towards speed, efficiency, and cost-effective construction; these methods led to a production rate of 30 houses a day by July 1948.They used pre-cut lumber and nails shipped from their own factories in Blue Lake, California, and built on concrete slabs, as they had done in a previous planned community in Norfolk, Virginia. This necessitated negotiating a change in the building code, which prior to the building of this community, did not permit concrete slabs. Given the urgent need for housing in the region, the town agreed. Levitt & Sons also controversially utilized non-union contractors in the project, a move which provoked picket lines. On the other hand, they paid their workers very well and offered all kinds of incentives that allowed them to earn extra money, so that they often could earn twice as much a week as elsewhere. The company also cut out middlemen and purchased many items, including lumber and televisions, directly from manufacturers. The building of every house was reduced to 26 steps, with sub-contractors responsible for each step. His mass production of thousands of houses at virtually the same time allowed Levitt to sell them, with kitchens fully stocked with modern appliances, and a television in the living room, for as little as $8,000 each (equal to $92,721 today), which, with the G.I. Bill and federal housing subsidies, reduced the up-front cost of a house to many buyers to around $400 (equal to $4,636 today).
